Juicy, warm and clean. African winter coffees always bring us warmth at this time of year. A pink pepper fragrance with a juicy body, citric acidity and aromas that remind us of nectarine and honey. Enjoy it!

The Nemba washing station is located in Kayanza province. There are different points within the area where cherries are delivered of more than 3,000 small producers. At each collection point, there is an agronomist in charge of teaching good cultivation, care and harvest practices to each of the producing families. The washing station is also in charge of providing organic fertilizers derived from the compost of the coffee cherry. In addition, the washing station has a “nursery” for coffee trees, small coffee trees ready to be planted by these families in case they want to renovate their small farm. Each one of these families owns approximately 250 coffee trees on their small piece of land, which means that they produce between 200 and 300 kilos of coffee cherries per year.

The process of this coffee consists of the selection of the ripest cherries. The densest cherries, which are the ones that do not float in the water, are pulped within a maximum time of 6 hours after being harvested. Afterwards, the coffee is dry fermented for 12 hours and soaked and washed with clean mountain water for another 12 to 24 hours. Finally, the parchment coffee is dried in African beds for 2 to 3 weeks.

All our coffees with roasting for espresso can be prepared in your home Moka Pot with the recipe that you can find in the NOMAD at Home section.

If you have an espresso machine we recommend using 18 grams of coffee to extract 38 grams in a cup in a time of 30 seconds. We use a temperature of 93ºC with the help of 8 bars of pressure.

We offer you these guidelines so that you have a guide when developing a recipe, but you should bear in mind that it can change depending on the coffee machine you are working with, the grinder and the water you are using.
